A Ohio woman is behind bars in a case of domestic violence that resulted in a brutal stabbing. Police in Akron arrested Phyllis Jefferson on charges that she stabbed her boyfriend during a food spat. Records show the woman became angry when her lover ate all of the salsa, citing information sourced from a Cleveland news report.
Jefferson’s temper may be hot as salsa, but for all the wrong reasons. According to the victim, 61-year-old Ronnie D. Bucker, he and his girlfriend engaged in a verbal spat while snacking on chips. Jefferson became irate over the amount of salsa the man consumed. During the exchange, the woman fetched a pen and stabbed the boyfriend in the groin area. She then walked over to the television and threatened to trash it on the floor.

Bucker managed to save the TV from damage. But the woman turned her attention to the kitchen, where she armed herself with a knife. She allegedly used it to cut the man on his abdominal region. Police and paramedics were called to the scene of the stabbing and found the man clutching his stomach from a bleeding wound.
The man was transported to a local hospital and treated. Reportedly, his stab wounds are non-life threatening. A short time later, local police caught up with the woman who fled the residence after stabbing her lover. Police made the stop on a nearby road and took the woman into custody without incident. Reportedly, she confessed to taking part in the violent confrontation, and said she stabbed her boyfriend because she “wanted to leave.”
In December of last year, the Inquisitr reported on another stabbing involving a couple. It, too, involved food as a precipitating element of the violent act. Then, a man and woman were chatting along in the kitchen when the wife made a quip about a cucumber her husband was chopping. When she made a comparison to his manhood, he became enraged and stabbed the woman with the kitchen knife. She survived the attack, and police arrested him later for the stabbing.
After admitting to stabbing her boyfriend for eating too much salsa, Jefferson was arrested and transported to the Summit County Jail. There, she was booked and charged with two counts: damaging property and felonious injuring.
